If your story was rejected from a Challenge, you will receive an email alerting you. To confirm that you’ve successfully submitted a story to a Challenge, you can go directly to the Challenge Page and see your entry listed under “My Submissions.”
Making edits to a Challenge submission doesn't disqualify your entry, whether you ask us to revert fully to a draft, or use our newest feature for Vocal+ members, Quick Edit.
In order to be eligible for a Challenge on Vocal, a story must be submitted for review before the Challenge closes. As long as your submission was submitted for review to a Challenge before the deadline, it will still be an eligible entry after you edit, resubmit, and it is published again on Vocal. That said, you're free to make edits to your Challenge submission and resubmit. The story will appear on the Challenge page after it's published again. This also applies to using the Vocal+ Quick Edit feature.
